To collect, display, care for and access museum objects, was and remains the core purpose of our museums and galleries. Recently the term has come to be synonymous with database systems to store and generate information on collections, but in its wider sense, it encompasses all the activities of those engaged in caring for our national heritage.

As such, this is the first publication of its kind to act as a comprehensive and practical guide to collections management."--Publisher.
